Trust Event Solutions vs. Blackbaud

In our comparison of Rasier’s Edge events module and Trust Event Solutions Event Management software, we found major differences between the 2 brands of event management software.

Blackbaud’s Raiser’s Edge donor tracking software, arguably the top donor tracking system on the market, features an events module that can be purchased for an extra cost. Blackbaud released their event management module in response to the development of event-specific software in the marketplace. While we mentioned that Blackbaud managed to develop quality donor tracking software, their event management software falls short for the client that is looking for a flexible, all-inclusive, brand-able event management solution. The Razor’s Edge Events Module is a solution that was designed to service a generic event structure. While there are numerous events that follow this generic pattern, most events come with their own specific and unique set of requirements. Trust Event Solutions developed their event management solution for the client who is looking for an all-inclusive, functionally rich and flexible solution (expert product support is included) that is customizable to fit the exact needs of each special event. Trust Event Solutions is an Events Management Solutions provider; that is our expertise. Each aspect of Trust Event Solutions’ event management software is fully customized and branded to maximize results.

Summary

There is NO single blueprint for special event management. Each and every event is different. Those who are proficient in conducting successful events understand that special events have their own unique language. That is why Trust is pleased to have developed the most functionally rich solution on the market. While those at Blackbaud are professionals in donor tracking, they are not event professionals. Trust Event Solutions are seasoned professionals in the field of special events management. This is extremely evident in their software, client retention and support.
